This study examines relationships to place between residents of Yakutat, Alaska and the Situk River. It documents an assessment of local perspectives on use, conflict, and management issues on the river. Initial semi-structured, in-depth interviews were conducted with targeted community members in 2004 to gain an understanding of local perspectives. These interviews were used to help develop a quantitative survey of 225 random community members in 2005. This data publication contains the results of the quantitative survey, which includes data such as actual and preferred activities in the area, level of management services of facilities, desired changes in management services, the importance of the Situk River to the community, and similar local perspectives.
